The honorary consul general of India to Luxembourg, Ambi Venkataraman, is hosting a concert by the Madras String Quartet.
The Madras String Quartet, founded in 1993 and based in Chennai, originally performed a repertoire of western chamber music.
The founder and first violinist of the quartet, V.S. Narasimhan, who had a formidable base in Carnatic music (southern Indian classical music system), embarked on a remarkable musical voyage: he began exploring new frontiers in chamber music performance with his quartet with a unique combination of southern Indian classical music with western harmonic principles. This original integration of the Indian and Western classical music systems has been widely hailed as ground-breaking work.
The Madras String Quartet also features Mohan Rao on second violin, Sasikumar on viola and V.R.Sekar on cello.
The concert is sponsored by the ICCR and Indian snacks and soft drinks will be available for purchase.
